13 broken pieces of id

by James Knight


The leaders took their seats, and the common

……….scowled and shook his fist.



……to do battle with him.

exulting in…………………. bloodshed and slaughter.



……..consider the good of the state.

..consider the killing

………..digging a trench round their fortifications,

…….deceived by a dream


attack the leaders with…….words


my words.



…..and killed




beneath the city walls
